BACKGROUND To investigate the hemodynamic response of the cerebral bridging veins to increased intracranial pressure (ICP) during normo- and hyperventilation. METHODS Flow velocity (FV(m)), diameter (D), and pulsatility index (PI) were measured and calculated in the cerebral bridging veins using Color Doppler Ultrasound in seven pigs, and cerebral blood(More)
